Go-To Color

29 January 2017

Am I the only one that has a ‘go to’ color?
I love any shade of a green, but specifically a green with a hint of brown.
No matter how pale I am (at the moment VERY ) this color works. Although I think we can all agree, everything looks better on after a week at the beach. 🙂

As there are no beaches in my immediate future, my pale self will be reaching for earthy tones and facial bronzer.

What color is your ‘go-to’?

If you’re not sure, ask your Mom, sister, or best friend (and as a last resort your husband because he will most likely, or should, tell you every color looks good on you). 🙂

Side note: I found this sweater at Nordstrom Rack and didn’t even have time to try it on before buying. Literally ran into Nordstrom Rack with my sister and Mom at 8:50 p.m. with 10 whole minutes to score something good. I’d say we were pretty successful at speed shopping ’cause we all took home some goodies and I’ve been wearing this sweater and booties on repeat since Christmas.

If Supermarket Sweep is still a thing, somebody sign us up.

Spring Teaser

15 January 2017

So while we were in Texas over the holidays, the weather was absolutely perfect.
I’m talking blue skies, sunshine, short-sleeves-welcome kinda weather. Unseasonably warm, even for the Lone Star State.
I guess I had temporarily forgotten what it felt like to walk outside and not need a jacket.

Now we are back to the true winter (seriously I think it is snowing as I type), and there is a good chance we will be wearing our sweaters well into April. *brrrr*
But that Spring time teaser sure was sweet while it lasted.

In the mean time, I will enjoy the snow covered houses, hot tea & comfort food.

One of the trends I love every spring is a military jacket. By far a staple piece you should have in your closet. It pairs well with dresses, denim, and can be worn with cut-offs when the weather allows. So for you Texans, I would invest in a military-inspired quickly, because the chances of you getting to wear it in the near future are very high. 🙂

Happy 2017

4 January 2017

Happy 2017, friends!! 

I’ve got a good feeling about this year, how about you?
The start of a new year brings a lot of hope, goals and well-intended eating habits (especially after our 10 day eating tour of Texas). 😉

What are some of your New Years Resolutions this year?

This year, I’m going to:
Worry less, trust God more
Savor life to the fullest
Become the healthiest version of myself 
Enjoy my free time more
And on a less serious note: buy items for my wardrobe that will last longer and become a closet staple vs. a trend piece
